Study on the size and role of Creative and Cultural Industries (CCI) in the Walloon economy, in particular within industrial value chains (2014)


This study is related to a recently completed study on inter-industrial relations in Wallonia, which highlighted the importance of some high added-value domestic services for anchoring major industrial sectors in the Walloon economy. In fact, according to the literature, both high added-value services and creative industries are playing an increasingly important role in industrial renewal and in the adjustment of production structures in Wallonia, Europe or beyond. Consequently, regional and European industrial policies have increasingly stressed the need to better understand (and stimulate) such favourable interactions. The main objective of this study was therefore to analyse and to assess the role of creative and cultural industries and the interactions between creative and cultural industries, knowledge-intensive services and industry in Wallonia.
